This is what they call a leading indicator in the financial and commodities markets. It’s kind of like when the shoeshine boy gave Joseph Kennedy a stock tip, and he knew he better get out of the stock market. Indians smuggling gold in their gut? Better get you some NOW.

And India is the second biggest market for gold. China, the superstar of the global economy, is vaccuuming up gold like there’s no tomorrow. The gold that the Chinese and Indians are acquiring will probably not be circulated on the world market for a generation at least. Patel and Wang are hoarding gold like maniacs, and there’s LOTS of them.

New Delhi, India (CNN) — When a team of Indian surgeons opened up the stomach of a patient complaining of abdominal pain, they had no idea they’d extract a fortune.
The patient, whose name was not released, was hiding 12 gold bars in his belly. He apparently smuggled them into India to evade import duty, police and doctors said Tuesday.
Each bar weighed 33 grams, said C.S. Ramachandran, who conducted the surgery at a hospital in New Delhi on April 9.
The 63-year-old patient, an Indian citizen, visited the hospital a day before with severe stomach pain and nausea.

“He told us he had accidentally swallowed the cap of a plastic bottle,” Ramachandran said.
Investigations could not confirm his claim.
“We couldn’t (either) make out they were gold bars,” the doctor said. “But yes, X-Rays showed there was intestinal blockage, which required surgery.”
On the day of surgery, stunned doctors pulled out the yellow metal from his stomach.
“It was unexpected,” Ramachandran said.
The hospital handed over the precious extraction to local police.
The bars have since been sent to customs, which is conducting a probe, said Alok Kumar, a deputy commissioner of police.
He didn’t disclose the name of the patient. Nor did he reveal which country he smuggled the gold from.
The patient was discharged after the surgery, and is doing fine.
India is the world’s second-largest gold market after China, according to the World Gold Council.
Indian investment in gold bars recorded an increase of 16% in 2013, the WGC says.
A tax of 10% is levied on gold imports in India.

    Hey I watched this documentary today from Casey Research titled “Meltdown America” released this month, I think it’s worth a watch. They interview three people from Yugoslavia, Argentina, and Zimbabwe. Of course, they completely ignore race/ethnic conflict and just talk about “capitalism” vs. “socialism”. Here’s my critique:

    Yugoslavia’s troubles were exacerbated by its multiethnic nature (especially Bosnia).

    They point out that Argentina and USA were both on par prior to WWI, but that Argentina declined. I’m not sure if this is true but is what race-blind economists call “Argentine Paradox” really a result of advanced mestization of the Med-Whites with the natives there? Does this then lead to the predicatable conflict of military dictatorship vs. communist insurgency? Perhaps Chechar would know more about this subject.

    Lastly, with Zimbabwe…well yeah it’s pretty obvious isn’t it? The White guy mentions he tells his friends who live in S. Africa that those on the “registered taxpayer” list are basically funding their dispossession. I hope the all the Afrikaners start making moves to settle in Orania, and secretly I hope the Oranians have a stockpile of…”useful hardware”.
